Mermadurga was a design that spawned from a rough sketch of a mermaid with two poorly placed arms. I sketched two more arms in a different pose which still didn't look quite right so I added two more, ultimately filling the space and there was no more room for iteration. I got up and made some tea out of shear frustration when I noticed from a distance that the mermaid resembled a Hindu goddess of sorts so I did some research and found Durga; the most beautiful and powerful goddess with many arms who just so happened to have a trident symbol on her forehead (sometimes) which to me felt like a really cool and serendipitous coincidence!
